Hey all,

Does your horse click? If so how old is he/she and do you know why?

Both of my young horses click, it gets worse when they have been stood but im not sure if this is healthy and normal or not? Its not excesivley loud and definitely not a crunch but I worry....!

I know I click somtimes and im fine but it does worry me after my old horse having such severe joint problems.

Do any supplements help? And if so which ones? There are SO many!?

A horse I ride, he's an 8 year old qh, clicks in one of his hocks.. or it's something behind me when i'm in the saddle.

He wasn't being ridden a lot prior to me riding him, but he's out in a field all day and can do whatever.

I'm not sure why he clicks, but it doesn't affect him at all.. from what I can see.

Yes im sure it doesnt effect either of my two either but its a worry!

Im probably being daft!

Clicking is not anything to worry about, it's just like in us where the foliac acid moves around in our joints.

Some supplements you can try are MSM or go to and they have a ton there depending on ur price range and it gives you information on each individual supplement.
